Seriously?? It's kinda funny; either you love Phage or you think she's a waste of a card slot from the set.

Running Esper colors you can use both Angel's Grace + Ressurection spells, and Volrath's Shapeshifter as alternate means to getting Phage into play safely, and protect her azz with Lightning Greaves and counter spells(though, I must say, I'm getting tired of Counterbalance/Top being run by everyone who plays control at Tourney).

The cost is very big and you must have at least four black mana when cast it. It's seems that if she's dangerous card. But the power/toughness are elevated, and how a pity that she doesn't have any protection for herself. I give five stars to be great legendary cards for collection only.... In casual play, you might try use her in your Mono Black Control. With the powerful anti-creature that can clean opposing creatures, the Phage will deliver a damage to end the game... don't forget to Duress or Hymn before playing her...

this is a very good card just use whisper silk cloak and that's game. I think it's worth the 7 mana just use dark ritual.

this is a very good card when played correctly, i run a dek based around phage geting it out and killing my opponent with it, i have found its very useful especially against elf decks or white decks that revolve around life gain. the only thing is getting phage into your hand and getting it out quickly in the first 4 turns, but there are so many combos you can use to protect phage/use all her abilities to your advantage that its well worth it. and all you people who say shes absolutely terrible are very wrong

Um, for all you retards who say this is unplayable because of the prohibitive mana cost and easy counters to it, there are countless fast mana generating methods for that are legal even in Legacy format, like Ancient Tomb, Basalt Monolith, Charmed Pendant, Lotus Bloom, Lotus Blossom, Lake of the Dead, etc. and, for all you idiots who think you can just cast a two spell mana card without abandon to make this card screw its caster, Chalice of the Void can be used universally and successfully against lots of decks with the number 1 for its variable, which would make it counterspell your Turn to Mists and Otherworldly Journey, so do some research before you spout for venom, morons.

The greatest black creature. However, if an opponant plays otherworldy journey, you lose the game, however that's a balanced risk worthy of taking and you will see why in a moment...

People rated this low for three reasons...

#1 She costs alot.
#2 She could be destroyed by a burn/counter spell.
#3 Otherworldly Journey/Turn to mist is an instant win.

#1 Although all her cards say, "minion legend" the official rulings now say that Phage is a zombie, so now you can essentially use three Undead Warchief's to play her for four swamps, AND make her a 10/7. And not to mention cards like cabal ritual.

#2 ANY creature can be destroyed by a burn or counter spell, even creatures with shroud can be destroyed by a counterspell, so putting that arguement on Phage is genuinely unfair, also using my previous argument, if you used four undead warchief's in conjunction with her she could have up to eight power, and that's not even including other tribal zombie boosters like death baron and lord of the undead. She's not so hard to burn now is she?

#3 Cards that force you to return her to play from outside your hand will cause you to lose instantly, but that should only be considered fair, considering she also causes the opponant to lose instantly.

Also, a nice way to make her unblockable is to use her with the "Zombie Master" and "Urborg, tomb of yawgmoth" or "blanket of night".

This creature is just great. in a black and green deck, entomb +regrowth if you've only got one in your deck. throw a nemesis mask or a lure on one of your your 1/1 for 1 wheine creatures, bam, or just get a whisper silk cloak. You would have to be fighting a one or two turn time walk deck to lose with it, unless you get plain unlucky and your entombs and regrowths dont show up =

I have a deck with 4 of these, sacrifice, dark rituals, and various other cards especially in the Mirrodin sets, like artifact creatures that give you mana when it comes into play, and Urza's Saga creature that costs 3 mana but gives you 3 mana when it comes into play makes up for this cards high mana cost. I call it my "Phage Deck." The deck focuses on filtering cards out and getting the mana to bring her out as soon as possible, while making her also, unblockable and untargetable using artifact cards from Mirroden sets, lightning greaves just in case I get her out fast enough I can send her to the player.

It is all about working this card, of course honestly my deck is sometimes hit or miss, all in all I have managed to get phage out in maybe an average of 5 turns? One time, I got her out in the 2nd term. This card rocks, SEARCH the entire Magic collection and find the cards that work with this one, and what do you want? Unblockability, and mana to get her out FAST. TRUST ME, there are PLENTY of magic cards out there for it, especially black cards that give you mana like Dark Ritual.

Enjoy and think ouside the box, find ways to get that mana as fast as you can without the lands needed. It works!

Great tricks with Phage--use need for speed and a lotus petal or spirit guide with the rituals to 1st turn kill. Also add hermetic study for tap to kill whatever-even players. 7 mana rarely gets you something THIS bad.

but yea awesome card with Dauthi Embrace!

The simple fact that you could (assuming you get 3 rituals and a dauthi embrace) get this out and make it unblockable on turn 3 makes it terrifying...and shes tough enough that a shock or lightning bolt wont kill her. she should have been more to cast or a 1/1~instead another broken card gets added to the list.

ok, here is what you do: First turn, play a swamp and mox emerald, then play Summer Bloom. then play Lake of the Dead, sacking the original swamp, then play two more swamps. tap Lake of the Dead and sack a swamp, producing 4 black mana, tap the leftover swamp for a dark ritual and there you go, seven mana to play phage. 1st turn, mind you!

Don't use Volrath's Shapeshifter, It will see phage as not being played by you hand. That is because Volrath's Shapeshifter is putting the card down not you. Same thing goes with elvish piper. Never understood why.

on of the main cards in my mono-black. I seldom have problems with getting her out. If you are add dark ritual to your deck. Also give her the Kusari-gama. I asked Magic about this combo and found out it works. If they block you kill everything they own do to phages ability. If they dont the lose. either way it sucks to be them.

Easy win. Get yourself 4 Zombie Trailblazers and and three or four Phages, just to make sure that you draw it. With the Trailblazer, turn an oppents land into a swamp and with an other zombie, give Phage swampwalk. If you have trouble getting enough mana out in you deck, then get a couple of Cabal Coffers as well.

I can't believe that no one wrote a review for this card i mean this card rocks, you what i mean. it is a 4/4 with if you deal damage to target creature it destroys that creature. not satisfied with that well look at this if it deals damage to target player you win the game. now that is sweetness.

ok this card is awesome. even though she is just 4/4, it is like a basilisk, but only better, since she kills you too if she deals you damage. wicked. but you can only summon her from your hand...so forget about getting her on turn two or three : )

NOTE: This review is based on type I play, in type II it would be a mere 3.

Phage is an incredible card that kills the opponent with just one swat (no pun intended). The problem with the card is getting it out. Well type I players, look no further 'cuz there is an answer to your questions - Volrath's Shapeshifter.

By using Volrath's Shapeshifter, one can BECOME Phage legally (as long as you cast him from hand) to smack down on your opponent. You can even combine this with block dodgers such as Fear or Shadow to get through, then change to Phage when dealing damage. Vioala! Instant win! Keep in mind, the best support card for this is Survival of the Fittest.

Casual play with no restriction? this card can definitely be played but i do think that this isnt more than a promotional card for wizards of the coast, ofcourse this card led the death touch ability that most players love and hate. but i dont think this would fare well in tournaments since there are alot of things to counter it and there is alot of ways to counter those counters but it comes with a price.

mana cost is too much? there are alot of cards that can make those costs easier example blacklotus/lotus bloom/channel/ there are alot of possibilities with this card but it is again, too risky for tournament plays although u might suprise you if a deck revolving around phage wins a tourney.

An awesome card!! Use it with Death Pits of Rath and Ronin Cliffrider, or just a Reiver Demon and your opponent is open for you to send phage to attack!! The reason i give it four stars is because back then it owned, but now you can easily kill it...

When Legions was about to make its debut, those who followed the Magic: the Gathering storyline knew that there were two big cards coming: Akroma and Phage, and in my vote, Phage takes the gold. Its ability is one never seen before, and can be used to your advantage in so many ways! It's perfect in monoblack control decks, discard decks, graveyard decks, and ESPECIALLY swampwalk decks (if you combine it with evil presence and filth you can't lose!). So, this card is pretty decent, but it can have its downsides (the whole ability that makes you lose if you play it from your graveyard or what have you,) but I still love it. I give this wondrous black legend a good 4 stars. I would've given it 5 except for the fact that it can be too dangerous at times. Enjoy!

Aside from Akroma, Angel of Wrath, this is a very good card. I mean think about it, you can win the game in two minutes! The mana cost is respectable, and you can even destroy a monster by doing damage to it. Although there is a small chance of you dieing if it doesnt come out of your hand, the probability isn't that high. This card is a must for all black decks.

I love this card. But there are two problems with it. The first one is that it is not that powerful, being a 4/4 creature. The second is that it's mana cost is a little bit high. Besides that, it's an excellent card.

CONSIDERING THIS CARDS HIGH MANA COST, THIS CARD IS A MUST HAVE FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO COLLECT LEGENDS. IT ALSO HAS THE PROBLEM OF BEING DIRECTLY CAST, SO SOMEHOW YOU'VE GOT TO GET IT INTO THE GRAVEYARD, WHICH YOU COULD JUST PURPOSELY LET YOUR HAND OVERFLOW, AND DISCARD IT, BUT THEN THERE'S THE HARD PART, YOU HAVE TO BRING IT BACK FROM THE GRAVEYARD, THAT IS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO LOSE THE GAME, BUT I'VE GOT A CURE FOR THAT TO. YOU COULD EASILY USE THE NOSTALGIC DREAMS CARD FROM TORMENT. thEN TO FINISH THE GAME, YOU COULD GIVE IT FLYING, OR MAKE IT UNBLOCKABLE, AND YOU WIN!

I still remember when this card came out. Phage was like the Polar Kraken when I first started playing, every new play I knew had to have one because of the power presented by the card, yet never took into consideration the cost and effectiveness of using it. I'm not saying she is a bad card, but there is more effective ways of winning a game without using this novelty card. I would give her a 3.5 If I could.

Yeh, this card is pretty great but only in a combo. It's actually quite weak as a creature, sure it can destroy creatures and possibly end the game and in a combo with a card that makes it unblockable and a card that can keep it alive, it would be fantastic. However, if you don't have that combo, you can't ressurect it from your graveyard and it's too easy to get rid of without something to back it up.

Great in a combo, not so great on it's own.

It's hype comes from being a legend. Competetive decks should not be running this. First of all, it costs a lot(Can be solved by dark rituals). Plus, people will be chump blocking this thing, that or just killing it. By the time this comes into play, your opponent, if he/she is skilled, should be running you over.

Still like Phage as Akroma's rival, but nothing more.

I've run into this card 3 times playing magic the first time I just kept sucker blocking it and won the game, the second time I fried it with a pair of shocks and the third time I bounced it with outworldly jouney and won, my point is Phage isn't all that great and for the mana I'd rather have a kokosho.

This card is just not that good! It costs eight mana and is a 4/4 without flying, fear or shadow. That means, unless you combo this one out in the first four rounds your opponents are going to have stronger creatures when you get phage out and then she just dies taking a slightly stronger creatre with her for the cost of eight when a terror would have done the same thin for two. So in a combodeck its a winning formula, otherwise pretty bad.

Not a bad card the effect is beutaful (as long as you draw it and have enough mana) though they're are setback like how weak it is, Phage is weak overall with 4/4 while say...Akroma Angel of Wrath blocks the first strike will destroy phage while Akroma keeps it's life. 3/5 still not bad though, much cheaper in price compared to Akroma

@ By Anonymous from USA on June 10, 2009 - Please don't call people who actually know how to play this game retards, it's not nice. Phage the unplayable is not necessarily unplayable but if you're trying to hard cast her you're probably a bad player. The only instance I can think of where you should EVER be hardcasting her is if you're playing mono-black control and your cabal coffers are already pumping out 10 black mana a turn. She is easily killable as she's only a friggin 4/4. Not gonna lie, I haven't seen a deck playing Phage win a tournament in Rochester in............ever.

@ Phage the unplayable - While not unplayable, the only 2 valid ways to play her competitively at this point are by either using her in mono-black control, which generates enough mana to pay for her exceedingly steep cost or you could run a slightly more functional deck like full english breakfast. For those of you unfamiliar with Full English Breakfast the deck uses the card Volrath's Shapeshifter which takes on all the properties of the top creature card in your graveyard. So what you do is attack with your 0/1 shapeshift and then after blockers are declared you use the shapeshifters discard ability to discard either Phage or Phyrexian Dreadnought or whatever else you want to use. Since Phage's "You lose the game" ability triggers on it being brought into play it never triggers since the shapeshifter just takes on it's abilities without it coming into play. There you are, now you have a way to play this card. Happy?

Phage isn't anything special. You people gotta realize that Phage doesn't go into any old deck. There's billions of ways to make Phage's controller lose the game via removing it from play until end of turn then bringing it back to play. Plus she costs 4 black mana and a combined cost of 7. What's that good about Phage? Not really that much...

If you want a much better creature that's black and in Legions go for Scion of Darkness. You can Zombify it, exhume it etc. Much better.

actually i thought about it and changed my mind...:
7 mana, 3 of which is black, is just...a lot. this'll just sit in your hand, unless of course you have other incredibly high-costed cards in your hand too. once you play it, it's a 4/4 with deathtouch that has to be blocked. no big deal...and if get one out, and your opponent o-rings it, then o-rings their o-ring, this comes into play and you lose.
